Let's all have another Orange Julius
KNRK is playing Modest Mouse?!!!
Sure enough, I heard their new single, which sounds like an out-of-context parody of REM, on the radio a few nights back. I've been moaning and groaning about commercial radio for years now. It's always a huge surprise when a band I actually like gets airplay.
On the other hand, the station spun "Everything In Its Right Place " maybe twice around the time Kid A was released. That was probably the first and last time I'll ever "Float On" dribbling out of an FM station.
Anyway, the new album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, is scheduled to roll out on April 6th, just in time for their back-to-back shows at the Crystal Ballroom.
